Are you ready for pears and football?

I just could not come with a name for this post!!  First, here is a set of notecards I made to go with the card from yesterday.I used the Desktop Organizer template from Papertrey, and created 8 simple notecards to go inside.  I also used more of the Good Morning Sunshine DSP and coordinating Kiwi Kiss and Summer Sun DSP along with my prized PTI ribbon.

I kept the notecards pretty simple, just stamping the pear image on each one and adding a strip of matted DSP to the front of the card.  They almost seem too simple!  Simple is so tough!!

Still in catch up gift mode, I made this card for  my nephew who turned 12 last week.  He plays football, and his school colors are gold and black so I went with this Wordart from Bethany available at Scraporchard.
 I am giving him a gift card, so I improvised a gift card insert since I could not easily find any instructions.  Came out a bit off, but here is a sideways picture!
 Won't matter...he will take the gift card and run!  Busy Saturday planned here with another nephew's 4 year birthday party and visiting my dad in the hospital, but the weather is beautiful!!!  Enjoy your day!

stamps:  Pear by Rubber Stampede
images:  Wordart by Bethany
paper:  SU! Good Morning Sunshine, Kiwi Kiss, Summer Sun;  SU! Basic Black, Gold
